Mistress of Molecules
 

Authored by Gerald M. Weinberg

Mistress of Molecules is a100,000-word science fiction novel, the first in a series.

Late in the twenty-second century, humans have spread through the galaxy, but only with the help of the alien Zgaarid, whose advanced technology has stifled human creativity and drive. This gentle slavery is about to change.

Raised on libertine Precursor, a polluted planet controlled by powerful corporations, Libra fights for liberty using her extraordinary powers of chemical synthesis to terrorize those in power.

Raised to be a fighting minister on moralistic Gemariah, an agricultural planet controlled by the Yahweh's Church, André escapes by stowing away on a Zgaarid spaceship.

When André's quick thinking saves a precious Zgaarid spaceship, he's honored by becoming a Zgaarid Ancestor. While assigned to solve the problem of chemical terrorism on Precursor, he meets Libra. Together, they free Precursor's millions.

Gemariah will be their next stop.
